It always amazes me how these narrow boats are so skillfully manoeuvred into locks Rosa. We often wander on the Llangollen and Montgomery canals, and watch just this very thing. You van tell who the experienced boat people are. ;-)

Cheers, Amelia

Good morning Amelia. The not so skillful seem to enjoy's fun to watch them too;) It's something I must do before much longer! I have warned Fairy not to venture near the 29 rising locks of Caen Hill though!!

All the best, Rosa.

I often walk along the canals but have never been on a narrow boat.

Best wishes, Rosa.
